The Desk of the National President

Greatest Akokites!

Once again a happy new year to you all! I hope you ushered in year 2022 joyfully and in good spirits with family and friends.

It is a privilege to see another year and to partake of the promise it holds.

I am pleased to inform you that this year has started on a good note, with the withdrawal of the legal suit brought against the association by some members. This is a win for all Great Akokites and a signal that everyone is back home!

This year, our goal is to forge ahead, in a world that has come to accept that Covid will not easily accept defeat, to recover time we lost on its advent.

We shall attract more and more of our ‘town’ to our ‘gown’ towards achieving our objectives of taking our Alma mater further.

Our events, as much as reasonably possible, shall be with pomp and pageantry with a quality that is second to none, a standard with which the Alumni Association has come to be identified.

This year, we shall decorate another set of our finest with our highest laurels in recognition of their nationally- and globally- recognised accomplishments.

Our much-anticipated hostel project will take off in the first quarter of this year.

As the country ramps up towards changing leadership next year, we shall be the alumni body to reckon with.
While nonpartisan, our platform will be sought by alumni in governance to share their accounts of stewardship.

Indeed our Unilag Alumni Live TV will kick off this quarter with the nation’s Number Two citizen, H. E. Prof. Yemi Oshinbajo, GCON,SAN, as our first guest.

As our Alma mater clocks its 60th year, we reiterate with gusto our desire to ensure that our University retains its position as the University of First Choice and the Nation’s Pride

In rounding off, we are mindful that this is the last lap of our administration.

Our dream is to be succeeded by an Executive who will pick up the gauntlet and midwife to full bloom, the scions we have developed, having been gracefully imbued by previous administrations; men and women with sincere motives, to which the association can look for resources, support and progress, even in difficult times.

On behalf of the National Executive Committee, I wish you a remarkable 2022.

May God bless and prosper you all.
